Outtakes, Bloopers and Gag Reels Saturday, Feb 6 2010 

Not very informative or educational, sure, but here are a few of my much loved bloopers picks care of YouTube! They made me laugh, so I figured they were worth posting! And it’s always fun to watch behind the scenes stuff ups from some of your fave movies and shows.

Ashley Green and Justin Long doing an ad for Teens For Jeans, a campaign that encourages people to donate their old jeans for the teenage homeless in the U.S. (Awww bless) Watch the footage here.

Behind the scenes of the TV show Extras with Ricky Gervais and a mass of Hollywood celebs. Watch The Art of Corpsing Part 1 and Part 2. So funny, made me laugh until I cried! God bless Ricky, always the consummate professional! (Note: Sarcasm)

The gag reel from Forgetting Sarah Marshall – if you’ve seen the movie you will crack up. I don’t know how they even completed the film considering how funny it is… to keep a straight face and act out some of these lines shows real willpower and talent! Watch it here.

Bloopers from the movie The Hangover.

The movie Anchorman is funny enough on it’s own, but these outtakes are great!

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the TV show Friends – and to be honest, I don’t want to! Obviously, with 10 seasons, there is a multitude of gag reels for this epic show, but here is a good one just for a taste! These guys are just so brilliant! *Grins*

So that’s enough of my finds from YouTube – hope one of them gives you (at the very least!) a bit of a chuckle!

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Saturday, Dec 5 2009 

This movie has been out on DVD for a while, and if you’re looking for a movie that makes you cry with laughter, then I recommend you rent it (or heck, buy it!). 

Forgetting Sarah Marshall stars and is written by Jason Segal (How I Met Your Mother, I Love You Man, Knocked Up and countless more) and shows the breakup between Peter (Segal) a musician who has yet to find his true calling and Sarah Marshall (played by Kristen Bell) a famous television actress. Sarah breaks up with Peter after five years together, leaving him for infamous british rock star Aldous Snow (played by hilarious comedic talent Russell Brand) and causing him to spiral into a pathetic state of depression.

With a push from his half-brother Brian (Bill Hader) Peter decides to leave the country and the constant reminders of Sarah, and flies to the beautiful island of Hawaii. Once there, he checks into a beautiful resort where – to his surprise, dismay and burgeoning hope – he runs into Sarah and Aldous, who are also holidaying at the resort together. 

The rest of the movie is a brilliant, witty and laugh out loud journey where Peter both finds who he is and what he really wants in life. One of the resort workers, Rachel Jansen (Mila Kunis) helps Peter to relax and have fun, and along the way a romance blooms. Other characters include Chuck (Paul Rudd) a stoner surf instructor, Darald (Jack McBrayer) a newly wed on his honeymoon whose major crisis is how to bring god into the bedroom for the first time and Matthew (Jonah Hill) the resorts loser waiter who is absolutely obsessed with Aldous and wants to follow in his rock-god footsteps. 

This movie is brilliant. Not only is it one of the funniest movies I have watched in a while, but it is also painfully brutal when it comes to the truth behind relationships. Sometimes, it isn’t black and white, not just one persons fault. One of those odd comedies that actually gets you thinking. 

Warning, it can be delightfully rude and there is a bit of nudity – though not from who you’d expect! This is a great movie to watch with mates or even an ice-breaker for a first date. It’s just great!
